"Campus Ministries means a lot to me because it was the first place where I really began to feel welcome and more importantly, comfortable. I love being able to come to chapel knowing that I have fellow Christian friends and people that care about me here. My faith is a huge part of my identity and it’s great to be able to fellowship with people that hold the same views and  convictions."

"Faith has always been an integral part of my life ever since I was little. I knew coming to Augustana was only going to help that grow and foster in something so beautiful. Campus Ministries is so special because it gives me a place to come and do what I love doing with people that I love. I can laugh, relax, and praise all at the same time, Campus Ministries gives that to me. I am excited to be a member of this team!”

"I am thrilled to have been chosen to be a member of the Campus Ministries Leadership Team. I was and still am really involved at my church back home - it brings me a lot of joy. I have even thought of becoming a youth director in addition to being an elementary school teacher when I graduate. I heard about the Leadership team at the start of my freshman year and knew I would enjoy helping to plan events to bring members of campus together and to have a good time. I look forward to working with the rest of the team to plan fun events and to be a part of the positive and supportive environment!”

Something I like about Campus Ministries is that there is always a smiling face around campus, a person willing to listen and talk with you, and is filled with people who love God!

The Campus Ministries community is so supportive and welcoming and is a great example of how to be a Christian in college.

Something I like about Campus Ministries is how — no matter your background or beliefs — there is a place for everyone to feel safe and accepted.  

The services that Campus Ministries provides also offer a great space for reflection to focus on the things that we may tend to overlook in our busy lives.

Alex Michalak:

I am excited to encourage others to go to chapel and participate in all the fun Campus Ministries events and retreats. What a great group to belong to!

I love the fact that I feel so at home and comfortable around everyone. It is really easy to relax and open up which is important during a stressful school year.  

I also love how inclusive and open Campus Ministries is to everyone. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to come!
